Older Practitioners Mr. Zhang Xuanshou and Shi Jinhua Arrested and Persecuted

Recently, two older practitioners from Qidong County, Hunan Province were arrested because they used currency which had information exposing the persecution written on it.

On December 23rd, 2007, Mr. Zhang Xuanshou, a 69-year-old retired man from Dayuan Village of Guanjiazui in Qidong along with Mr. Luo Guangzhong, also a 69-year-old practitioner from the same area, were taking a bus to go home. To buy the bus tickets, they used money on which was written facts regarding the truth of Dafa. The ticket seller then reported them to authorities. Mr. Zhang and Mr. Luo were later arrested by Shaoyang police officers. The police confiscated from them electronic equipment and 1,800 yuan1.

On December 25th, 2007, they were transferred to Qidong Town Detention Centre. On around January 8th, 2008, officers from the Qidong 610 Office2 broke into and searched their homes. The officers took Mr. Luo's TV and wireless pots and Mr. Zhang's leaflets exposing the persecution. The policemen also threatened Mr. Zhang's wife, ordering her to surrender her retirement card and salary card.

On January 3rd, 2008, Mr. Zhang was transferred to Qidong Detention Centre for persecution. Mr. Zhang has been subjected to torture several times already, and as a result he has much difficulty walking. Additionally, he is getting old and his health is not good. He was paralyzed one month ago, but he firmly believes in Dafa. He has since miraculously recovered, but still not fully. Mr. Zhang's family worries about him very much.

On around December 20th, 2007, Ms. Shi Jinhua, a 64-year-old practitioner from Qidong and a relative of an employee in the Hengyang Baidi City Iron and Steel Factory, was detained in Qidong Detention Centre because she distributed leaflets exposing the persecution. Ms. Shi has been subjected to brutal torture on over ten different occasions.
